The one whose fangs are the sharpest wins. Thus, Killing Bites.
 
— Hitomi's Catchphrase


Uzaki Hitomi (宇崎 瞳 Uzaki Hitomi?) is one of the main protagonists of the Killing Bites series. She is a ratel therianthrope and a Brute in Killing Bites known as Brute Ratel (獣闘士 (ブルート) 蜜獾 (ラーテル) Burūto Rāteru?) who answers to Shidou Reiichi.

Appearance[]

Hitomi is a young girl of average height with short white hair, which includes bangs covering her forehead, brown eyes, and possesses an athletically toned body. She normally wears her high school uniform, which is a white unbuttoned collar shirt with a red bow, a brown jacket, a blue skirt, white socks that goes up to her legs and sandals. As for her fighting attire, Hitomi prefers to wear a simple white crop top and exposed white panties while walking barefoot. After the timeskip, Hitomi starts wearing a different crop top with a jacket over and shorts.

As a child, Hitomi had a feral appearance due to her Origin Beast form and only wore a plain dress. After losing her Origin Beast form and being adapted into human society, Hitomi started to wear normal clean clothes that fit her.

Personality[]

Hitomi angry at Yuuya

Hitomi's aggressive behaviour.

Hitomi has an extremely fierce personality that makes her out to be rather unfriendly and intimidating around others. She will pick a fight against anyone with very little provocation if they annoy her, therianthrope or not. She has no shame or resistance in her state of dress when fighting but is conscious about acting more feminine despite her tomboyish attitude. Hitomi isn't exactly knowledgeable about most perverts unless they make a move. For example, after Yuuya accidentally grabbed her breast, Hitomi blushed and called him a pervert, followed by a punch to the face. However, when she was misguided by Eruza into dressing as a maid while keeping some of her therianthrope traits visible, she was oblivious to the fact that other boys were completely ogling her until much later on. She also has a fondness for sweets that makes her give off a cute, normal girl expression on her face. The most common times when Hitomi will break out of her violent behavior is whenever she encounters Shidou Reiichi (or be given an order by him through communication) where she switches into a respectful, sweeter, and cuter person that is very obedient.

Hitomi excited

Hitomi's excitement in the midst of battle.

Because of her strong genes as a ratel, Hitomi never backs down from a fight no matter how dire her situation is. This is also mainly due to the fact that she has never experienced fear since the moment she was born. She is also naturally very confident in her abilities that makes her out to be extremely arrogant. Despite the odds of being 100:0 in her match against the champion Brute Leo, Hitomi confidently told the Brute that she was guaranteed to win and arrogantly mocked him. Her victory even led her to forgetting his name after they met a second time. She also confidently believes that she is the strongest Brute in the world, which meant for her that she had no need for allies or allegiances with a zaibatsu. In the midst of her battles, Hitomi becomes a fearsome, hot-blooded fighter with an aggressive disposition. When it comes to Killing Bites, Hitomi believes in her own philosophy that only the ones who have surpassed their fighting instincts, which she refers to as "fangs", will be the deciding victor and that speed, power, sex, animal type, etc. are completely irrelevant. Though she typically forgets her opponents once she has fought them, Hitomi can remember their names well if they had proved to be a challenge for her in battle, such as Brute Gecko.

Abilities and Powers[]

Hitomi defeats Gigant Megatherium

Hitomi single-handedly brings down Nodoka, a therianthrope in her Gigant form.

Overall Abilities: Hitomi is among one of the most powerful therianthropes to exist. Though she is usually faced with dangerous opponents who are out of her league, Hitomi's true strength as a fierce and formidable combatant actually shines on the battlefield when she is on the receiving end, as with the case for ratels. During her time as a rookie in Killing Bites, Hitomi was able to beat Brute Leo, an undefeated Brute whose odds of winning against her were said to be 100:0, with a single blow in her first Killing Bites match. This achievement led her to earning the alias "Leo Killer" amongst the Brutes. Against his rival, Brute Tiger, Hitomi earned his acknowledgement for lasting long in a fight against him and was shown the same respect the Brute would give to Brute Leo by choosing to fight her seriously, something he has never done for any of his opponents before her. She was also capable of taking down Brutes who were professional fighters, such as Brute Bear who is known as the "Strongest Sumo Wrestler in Makushita", although she had already gotten a sense of his fighting style from their first encounter. Although she was badly injured, including the loss of her right arm, and overpowered even after awakening her Origin Beast form, Hitomi managed to bring down Brute Pangolin, Youko's ace in the Killing Bites Destroyale who was strong enough to defeat the likes of Brute Tiger effortlessly, and found him to be the easiest opponent she has ever faced, prompting her to toy with him during their battle.

Two years after the events of the Killing Bites Destroyale, Hitomi is looked at as a legendary prodigy and an inspiration to the next generation of Brutes. During the Killing Bites Deathival, Hitomi effortlessly took down a number of competing Brutes in her search for Yuuya and quickly defeated Gigant Megatherium single-handedly.

Natural Abilities[]

Ability Intuition: Hitomi possesses a special intuition for understanding how her opponent's attacks work by taking them head on. She is very perceptive, as she only needs to have her opponent execute an attack once in order to figure out the mechanics behind it. In rare instances, she may need to be assaulted two times if the attack is too fast to process or if she comes across an opponent who attacks differently than her previous foes.

Battle Form[]

Brute Ratel (獣闘士 (ブルート) 蜜獾 (ラーテル) Burūto Rāteru?): Having been born with this ability, Hitomi is able to transform her body to gain the characteristics and abilities of the ratel. When transformed, Hitomi gains black fur with a white tint covering the sides of her body up to under her armpits to her shoulders down to the top of her biceps. Her arms are fully covered in fur, as well as her legs up to her upper mid-thighs. A short tail also sprouts from Hitomi's tailbone and a pair of small ears adorns the top of her head. Her fingers and toenails are replaced with short yet sharp claws. In addition, she also acquires fangs that are shown to reach her teeth.

After meeting Eruza, Hitomi learned how to perform a partial transformation, such as only releasing her ratel ears, tail, or claws.

Ratel Physiology
Brute Ratel's pelt
Pelt: It is a well-known fact that ratels possess a thick and flexible fur that acts as their natural armor. The pelt of the ratel is incredibly resilient, being able to withstand any penetrating force in the animal kingdom, even a lion's fangs. Hitomi was able to survive a barrage of sharp quills from Brute Raudi that are capable of piercing metal and withstood attacks from extremely powerful opponents. One such opponent was Taiga, who is considered the second strongest Brute within the official rankings. Another was Takeshi, a savage Brute whose strength and defense overwhelmed the former with incredible ease.
Because of her high level of defense, Hitomi takes attacks head on to observe and anticipate them in order to launch a counterattack that brings them down. However, the parts that are left uncovered, such as her stomach, neck, and face, acts as her weak spots that her opponents can exploit. Hitomi is also liable to internal injuries such as bone fractures and organ damage. There have also been rare instances where the pelt is not entirely full proof to all attacks and can be penetrated with immense power, such as Takashi's razor-sharp tail, Nodoka's large claws, and Tasuku's bite force.
Hitomi's claws
Claws: Hitomi has razor-sharp claws that can rip through her opponent's flesh with ease and cause them to suffer serious blood loss that can result in death.
Poison Resistance: Hitomi possesses the ratel's limited resistance to deadly cobra venom, only be incapacitated for a few hours until she fully recovers. This was shown during the Killing Bites Destroyale where she Hitomi fell victim to Den's Pot Dance Snake Poison Mist but quickly regained consciousness to finish him off despite the Brutes claim that such exposure should have killed her.


Ratel Psychology
Hitomi's Indomitable Will

Hitomi continuing to fight Brute Pangolin despite losing her right arm.

Indomitable Will: For ratels, it is a fact that the small omnivorous animal goes through life endangering itself and attempting to make reckless actions against larger animals. Hitomi is shown to possess such behavior, as she refuses to surrender to no one until she sees that they are brought down, even when up against the largest and most powerful of therianthropes.
After her right arm was severed by Takeshi, Hitomi let out a cry of pain but quickly snapped back to her usual self after biting her hand and proceeded to attack. Ultimately, she was persistent in defeating him, willing to take on grievous injuries until the timing was right to grab her severed arm and throw it at his eye socket and land a finishing blow. During the Killing Bites Deathival, Hitomi faced Nodoka as Gigant Megatherium single-handedly and continued to do so despite losing her right leg and left arm in the midst of their second round. Her willpower also helped her to escape out of Kaori's Civetone Wrap after having a flashback of Reiichi.
  • Fearlessness: The source of Hitomi's incredible willpower is her complete inability to feel any level of fear when in a crisis, as the ratel is known to be the world's most fearless animal. In fact, Hitomi revealed that she has never once felt fear the moment she was born. She is one of the rare few who is immune to Brute Leo's roar. Even when she experiences overwhelming pain from having her limbs severed, Hitomi continues fighting with her nerves of steel, as shown in her battles against Brute Pangolin and Gigant Megatherium. After being sent falling down a cliff by Haiji, Hitomi only smiled with delight at how fun she was to fight rather than panic for her life. With her fearlessness, along with help from her resilient pelt, Hitomi is never afraid to take attacks head on, which proved to be key to her surviving Taiga's Tiger Cannon twice since the technique he uses first, the Supremacy Tiger, requires the opponent to react with a careless move.
Operation Lamebrain

Hitomi signaling Yuuya through the surveillance camera where the best spots for him to move her in the Destroyale.

Tactical Intellect: Hitomi also possesses the ratel's quick-witted intellect. To compensate for Yuuya's inexperience as a player for the Killing Bites Destroyale, Hitomi devised a strategy before the tournament where she would have him look at the monitor and give him a command through the surveillance cameras on where she would like for him to move her through rock-paper-scissors hand signals, with her animal gene's adaptability to unknown terrain allowing her to move to the best spots. Because of her lack of fear, Hitomi's strategies are rather extremely reckless and dangerous. Rather than try to avoid Den's coils slithering around, Hitomi intentionally gave him an opening to use his Snake Binding on her in order to attack him up close and off guard once she had forcibly released herself. After making improvised attacks on Brute Pangolin as a way to have herself land near her severed arm, Hitomi purposely allowed him to attack her while she was down until he dropped his guard to swiftly move into his blind spot of his right side, having lost his right eye to Brute Tiger earlier, and throw her arm at his right eye socket, giving her the opening she needed to swoop in and land a deathblow.


Physical Prowess
Hitomi escapes Snake Binding

Enhanced Strength: As a therianthrope, Hitomi has strength far surpassing that of an average human. During the Killing Bites Destroyale, she was able to effortlessly release herself from Den's Snake Binding that he proclaims to be inescapable once caught. She also has impressive leg strength that allows her to jump great heights.
Enhanced Speed and Reflexes: Hitomi's speed, agility, and reflexes is also increased in this form. She is fast enough to swiftly attack her opponents before they even have time to react, resulting in them falling victim to her claws that can bring immense pain. While not as fast as Eruza, Hitomi was able to keep on her tail during their first encounter. She showed impressive reaction timing to dodge Hongou's Bear Palm and only end up with a minor scratch on her face. Hitomi was even capable of reacting fast to Taiga's Zessou after calculating the timing behind his speed from just only seeing it twice.
Hitomi survives Ibex Mixer

Enhanced Stamina & Endurance: Hitomi has shown to possess immense stamina and endurance throughout the series. Because of her pelt acting as her natural armor, Hitomi is never bothered by the injuries sustained on parts of her uncovered body since they only end up being minor. In her first Killing Bites match against Brute Leo where she took a beating from the Brute, Hitomi remained conscious during the brutal thrashing and retaliated by biting off three of his fingers. During the Killing Bites Destroyale, she was able to endure the full impact of Taiga's Tiger Cannon twice, a feat that only Yuugo was credited for according to the Brute. Though she can't maintain her composure when losing a limb, Hitomi nevertheless has shown to have a high tolerance for pain, as she was unbothered having her fingers bitten off by Brute Tasmanian Devil and took a claw to the mouth by Koyomi without being fazed one bit. In her match against Haiji, Hitomi remained conscious after taking damage from her Ibex Mixer head on twice and even managed to survive her powerbomb maneuver from the height of a cliff.


Fighting Style
Skilled Hand-to-Hand Combat: Hitomi's fighting style mainly revolves around the use of her sharp claws and complete reliance on her own instincts. Due to the nature of her own transformation and her own straightforward personality, she has only one move in her entire arsenal, unlike many other Brutes who have developed more complex and diverse techniques.
  • Counter: Hitomi fights recklessly due to her making use of her special intuition to perceive her opponent's attacks by taking them head on. When the time comes for her opponent to unleash it again on her, Hitomi performs a counterattack at the briefest window, having already gotten a sense of its timing, speed, and power. This way of fighting has proven to work effectively for Hitomi due to her fearlessness and confidence in her resilient pelt that reduces the damage inflicted upon her. To bait them into attacking with their full strength, she starts off by provoking them with her arrogance.


Techniques
Brute Ratel defeats Brute Leo
Slash (蜜獾斬 (スラッシュ) Surasshu?): Hitomi's signature technique where she swiftly comes in to slash her target with her claws at the last second her opponent makes an attack. Though it is a standard slash attack it is highly effective, capable of defeating Hitomi's opponents with just a single blow. The attack was first used against Yuugo and was what led to his defeat, earning Hitomi the nickname "Leo Killer". The attack was also so lethal that Yuugo was unable to participate in the Killing Bites Destroyale due to his arm not fully recovered.


Origin Beast[]

Origin Beast ( (オリ) () (ンビ) (ース) () Orijinbīsuto?): Hitomi's true form as a natural born therianthrope. Her animal traits as Brute Ratel become much more prominent. Her black ratel fur shifts to being pure white and grows to become tuft, while her skin becomes tanned, and her eyes turn red. The fur on her lower body noticeably extends to completely covering her legs and hips. Her hair also grows longer and wilder. Her hands and feet become black with longer claws.

Hitomi's mental state is also affected on top of her appearance, becoming more exhilarated to fight her opponents than she did previously to where she tends to toy with them as her "playthings".


Physical Prowess
Brute Ratel vs Gigant Megatherium

Augmented Strength: In this form, Hitomi was capable of kicking Brute Pangolin in his protective shell a good distance away and pierce right through the back of his skull, resulting in his brain matter being exposed. In her battle against Gigant Megatherium, she was able to free herself from her grasp with ease, create deep giant wounds with her slash attacks, an impressive feat since the megatherium possesses fur and muscle armor that not even the fangs of a Smilodon could pierce, and slash off one of her giant claws.
Origin Beast Hitomi's speed

Brute Cheetah caught off guard after Hitomi moves right pass her to attack Brute Pangolin.

Augmented Speed and Reflexes: After awakening this form, Hitomi's speed, animalistic agility and movement drastically increased to where she was able to swiftly move right pass Brute Cheetah, the fastest Brute who has enhanced eyesight for movement, to attack Brute Pangolin without her fully processing her action, much to her complete and utter shock. She then proceeded to instantly sit right on top of his tail after he momentarily had gotten back up. During the Killing Bites Deathival, Hitomi was able to swiftly charge at Gigant Megatherium before her claw had come in to land an attack and reacted fast to slicing off her incoming claw during their second round. Though she lost her left arm to Gigant Megatherium's claw, she was able to see the attack coming to move out of the way of a fatal blow.
Augmented Durability: Hitomi's body becomes a lot tougher, as she usually performs charging attacks without feeling any discomfort.


Fighting Style

Hitomi launching herself headfirst at her opponent.

In her Origin Beast form, Hitomi fights more animalistic and wilder than when she was Brute Ratel. Most commonly, her first move would be to use her enhanced speed to launch herself headfirst at her opponent to knock them back, which would then allow her to follow up with relentless attacks from her claws.


Techniques
Augmented Slash: Hitomi's Slash becomes drastically augmented to where it is capable of inflicting a wound big and deep enough for Gigant Megatherium.

History[]

Past[]

Hitomi and Reiichi's past

Hitomi's past interactions with Reiichi.

Hitomi's past as to where she originated from, what she was, or how she was born, is left as a complete mystery. What can be said from the moment of her birth is that she somehow became blessed with animal genes that gave her the appearance and mannerisms of a wild beast. During her feral childhood, Hitomi resided in Hong Kong where she went around stealing food to survive, catching attention from the locals in the process who gave her the name Chùshēng (畜牲?). Eventually, Hitomi was approached by Shidou Reiichi who had planned to study her for his research. Hitomi distanced herself from Reiichi at all times whenever he came to meet her but gradually started to become fond of him. After protecting her from a group of men from the Chinese mafia, Hitomi came to trust Reiichi enough to go along with him.

Killing Bites Destroyale Arc[]

Brute Ratel defeats Brute Leo

Brute Ratel defeats Brute Leo.

While walking along the streets, Hitomi is taken by a group of college students and His Boss named Houjou who prepare to violate her but are slaughtered by her for their transgression. She then tells the driver, Nomoto Yuuya, who stopped the van due to not wanting to continue any further with this act, to keep driving, as well as warn him to not look behind to see the carnage. After making Yuuya stop at a junkyard, Hitomi calls Shidou Reiichi to tell him she and Yuuya have arrived at the site for her first Killing Bites match with the Brute Leo. She then turns around to see Yuuya missing but soon finds him after he confronted and angered Leo. Hitomi confronts her Killing Bites opponent and offers Yuuya's life as collateral as she changes into her Brute Ratel form. As she begins to mock Leo, Hitomi is sent crashing by Leo and is hit with a series of attacks. Despite being injured, Hitomi manages to bite off three of Leo's fingers and wins her match by finishing him off with Slash. She is then taken to Yuuya's apartment to have her wounds looked at.

Hitomi agreeing to join the Ishida Zaibatsu Team

Hitomi happily following Shidou's orders to join Ishida Zaibatsu.

The next day, Hitomi has Yuuya follow him to a dessert restaurant to meet up with Shidou Reiichi who assigns Hitomi as Yuuya's bodyguard while Yuuya is forced to become her investor. Later, Hitomi demands Yuuya to go out to fetch the things she has listed with the other intention of using him as bait to lure out enemies out looking for her. After Brute Raudi attacks Yuuya, Hitomi appears to confront her but has her fight interrupted by Okajima Ichinosuke who has come looking for Hitomi to join Ishida Zaibatsu for the Killing Bites Destroyale. Hitomi refuses, having too much confidence in her strength, however, after she gets a text from Reiichi instructing her to join Ishida Zaibatsu, Hitomi agrees to temporarily affiliate herself with Ishida Zaibatsu.

Hitomi accompanies Yuuya to the hospital to treat his injuries and to his college where she meets one of his friends, who she found to be annoying, and sits through a boring classroom lecture. She then goes to the bathroom and is met by Nakanishi Eruza, a Brute from Yatsubishi Zaibatsu who has come to pick a fight with her by stealing her underwear. Hitomi enters her battle form and chases after Eruza whose speed is too fast for her to catch up. Eruza swiftly gets on top of Hitomi and enters her battle form, revealing herself as Brute Cheetah and makes an incoming blow to her neck. However, Hitomi intercepts it by using her fangs to bite down on her paw, causing Eruza to back away. They are then interrupted by Yabe Shota and Brute Bear who warns them that fighting between Brutes are forbidden until the Killing Bites Destroyale, however, Hitomi ignores what Shota had to say and rushes in to attack. She sees that he managed avoid it by grabbing on to a tree branch and is stopped by Eruza from continuing to cause any further violence.

To make sure that Hitomi does not engage in any fights before the Destroyale, Eruza follows her to meet back with Yuuya in his club room and are asked by him to wear maid outfits given to him by Moriyama to convince him and the others that their cosplayers after exposing their transformations. Hitomi declines his request at first but changes her mind after Eruza offers to teach her partial transformation if she wears the outfits with her. The two walk out wearing the outfits and pose for the college students, which Hitomi found to be oddly enjoyable. Later, in a restaurant, Hitomi is told by Eruza that she should think about finding another investor before the Destroyale since Yuuya is unskilled as a player but tells her that she is okay with having Yuuya since she can use him to do whatever she wants. Hitomi returns to Yuuya's apartment and has him accompany her to the park to discuss matters before the upcoming event.

Ishida Zaibatsu Team

The Ishida Zaibatsu Team.

After a week passed, Hitomi attends the Destroyale dinner party and reunites with Tani Yuugo, Brute Leo, who came to wish her and Yuuya good luck in the competition, though she does not remember who he was. Hitomi then reunites with Eruza and meets her older brother, Nakanishi Taiga, who becomes disappointed that Yuugo will not be participating in the Destroyale. Shortly after, the rules of the Killing Bites Destroyale are explained by Shindou, much to Hitomi's excitement to see him, telling them that the Brutes will fight to the death on Nakijama and will be instructed by their players as to how many spaces they are to move. Before landing on the island, Hitomi, Ichinosuke, and Inaba Ui are begged by men from the Ishida Zaibatsu to win, to which Hitomi assures them that they will do fine.

Brute Ratel defeats Brute Bear

Brute Ratel defeats Brute Bear.

Having arrived at the island, Hitomi uses the tactic she told Yuuya to use prior to the Destroyale where she instructs him on the monitors using signals to tell him where she wishes to move. She is then confronted by Jerome Hongou, Brute Bear, the Brute she previously met at Yuuya's college. Hongou transforms and throws his first attack at Hitomi but is instantly defeat by her, having already figured out his fighting style when he first attacked her. Shortly after, Yuuya chooses to move Hitomoi of his own accord to Eruza's location in order to give assistance to her after she runs into trouble with Kazama Kaede (Brute Gecko) and Onuma Den (Brute Cobra). Hitomi becomes surprised that Yuuya would boldly make this action without her permission but smiles knowing that it was the right course of action.

Brute Cobra defeated by Brute Ratel

Brute Ratel defeats Brute Cobra.

Hitomi manages to arrive at Eruza's location and attacks Den who kept Eruza restrained but finds herself having trouble fighting against Kaede. Eruza steps in to tell Hitomi that her fight is with Kaede and interfere. Hitomi agrees to leave Kaede to Eruza and turns her attention to fighting Den. Hitomi allows herself to become wrapped with Den's cobra body and frees herself as a way to not having to worry about him moving around. She then jumps in at the right side of Den's injured eye done by Eruza earlier, thinking that it is his blind spot, but is hit by his tail after the latter uses his ability to track her scent. She then comes in for another attack, however, she falls unconscious after being paralyzed by Den's Cobra Mist. Den uses the opportunity to rape Hitomi in her unconscious state but is torn apart after Hitomi awakens due to her resistance to cobra venom. After her victory against Brute Cobra, Hitomi checks on Eruza's match with Kaede and is surprised to see that they are both still fighting. Kaede then flees the scene after her player instructs her to move to another location.

Brute Ratel vs Brute Tiger

Brute Ratel faces Brute Tiger.

With Kaede gone, Hitomi and Eruza move towards having rematch but lose their senses to the aphrodisiac pheromones created by Rikujou Kaori (Brute Civet). However, Hitomi returns to normal after having a past memory of Shindou and pushes Eruza away. She then confronts Kaori and attacks but finds herself facing against Taiga (Brute Tiger) after making his arrival. Hitomi sees that Den is still alive after jumping beside her and demands to the camera crew to take him to the hospital to recover. Hitomi turns her attention back to Taiga who tells her that he is unconvinced that she managed to defeat Leo. She is then seemingly hit by Taiga's deadly attack but stands back up after Taiga notices that she managed to dodge it. Hitomi takes another hit from Taiga's Kohou and manages to stand back up once again with the help of her pelt. However, she coughs up blood from the attack but is starting to notice the timing in Taiga's attack to prepare for a counterstrike. Just as Inaba arrives to warn Hitomi about a dangerous Brute coming to the area, Taiga takes Hitomi seriously and uses Zessou to try and finish her off. Hitomi manages to track Taiga from behind her, but before she could do anything, she is hit with a surprise attack by Takeshi's (Brute Pangolin) tail, sending her back unconscious.

Origin Beast Hitomi awakening

While unconscious, Takeshi takes down both Taiga and Ichinosuke. Inaba knows that it is dangerous for her and Hitomi to stay for much long and tries to dig her way out. However, Hitomi regains conscious and awakens her true form. She then looks at Takeshi about to face Eruza and states that she also wants to take part in the fight. Hitomi first body slams Takeshi and sits on his tail with full delight of knowing that she can fight a sturdy opponent. Takeshi has Hitomi off his tail and delivers powerful blows to her body. However, Hitomi shows no signs of damage and injuries Takeshi by slashing him upwards, along with an added comment, stating that she found him to be the easiest of all her opponents she has faced so far. She jumps in for another attack but sees that Takeshi has rolled up in his defensive shell. She then kicks him towards nearby trees, resulting in him becoming enraged and changing into a more powerful form due to his taboo about destroying nature.

Brute Pangolin defeated by Brute Ratel

Brute Ratel brings down Brute Pangolin.

Hitomi wonders as to what has come over Takeshi but then notices that her right arm has been severed by his razor-sharp tail, causing her to cry out in pain but quickly regains her composure shortly after. Hitomi is ultimately overwhelmed by his attacks and is stabbed in the back by his tail. As Takeshi prepares to finish her off, Hitomi manages to move out of the way on time while barley conscious and throws her severed arm, piercing Takeshi's wounded eye socket. She then jumps in close to him with a smile on her face, causing Takeshi to remember his mother in the process, and thrusts her claw in his mouth to penetrate his skull, defeating the Brute down. After gaining victory, Hitomi collapses from exhaustion. However, Takeshi stands back up and readies himself to kill Hitomi but is brought down once and for all after Eruza comes in to cut his neck, stealing the victory. Though the opportunity presented itself, Eruza decides to not kill Hitomi while unconscious.

With only Inaba being the only Brute left alive, Eruza goes after her but is unexpectedly taken down by a swift accidental kick by her, making Inaba the surprising winner of the Killing Bites Destroyale. Inaba takes the time to perform first aid to Hitomi's injuries but is attack by a group of Brute Chameleons sent by Sumitomo Miyabi to kill the surviving Brutes. However, Shinozaki Mai arrives to put a stop to the assassination attempt and reports this event to Reiichi.

Hitomi kills Yuuya

Hitomi assassinates Yuuya.

Two weeks after the Destroyale, Hitomi texts Yuuya to meet her at the junkyard where they first met. The two reunite and become happy to see each other again. Yuuya gives Hitomi his gratitude for making him develop the will to fight during the Destroyale and that he has come to understand her philosophy. Hitomi felt as though Yuuya was making a love confection and blushes at the situation. She genuinely says that she is grateful for everything that he has done to support her and slashes his body, revealing that she has been ordered by Shindou to kill him since he was in the way of his plans. She is then driven away by Shibayama who tells her that she should not feel sad since Yuuya would eventually meet his end after they crossed paths. Though she had tears running down her face, Hitomi denies the fact that she was feeling sad.

Carrot Field Arc[]

Following the legislation of Therianthropes, Hitomi became revered amongst the society of Therianthropes after word spread of her win against Brute Leo and her incredible match against Takeshi in the Destroyale. She continued to be under service to Reiichi and was ordered by him to be forbidden from participating in any further Killing Bites matches. Because of this, Hitomi's whereabouts became unknown to the world of Killing Bites.

Hitomi defeats Pure

Hitomi takes down Inui Pure.

After two years passed, Hitomi walks in on a high school fight between Inui Pure, Brute Beagle, and Igawa Chiyomatsu, Brute Giraffe, and becomes eager to join in. Although Igawa reminds her that she is under orders not to engage in any fights, Hitomi ignores his warnings and comes face to face with Pure who she found to be interesting after watching her attempts to take down Igawa. She then quickly defeats her after the latter tried to attack her and stands in front of Kuroi Tasuku while barley looking at her direction. Igawa tells Hitomi that the fight is over and will be forced to contact the Administration Bureau if she continues any further. Hitomi understands the situation agrees to walk away.

Later, Hitomi and Eruza watch as Brute Beagle fight against Brute Wolf in Carrot Field. After taking a close look at one of the spectators, Hitomi is shocked to see that Yuuya is alive and becomes furious by the time the match is over. She then reports to Reiichi that he has survived and tells him that she will make sure that he is dead.

Hitomi and Yuuya reunite

Hitomi reunites with Yuuya after two years.

Once the matches at Carrot Field were over, Hitomi confronts Yuuya and Pure at the park. Hitomi thwarts Pure's attack on her, after the latter sensed her intentions on killing Yuuya, and looks at Yuuya, angrily demanding to know how he survived her assassination. Yuuya changes the subject on why Hitomi tried to kill him and pours out the grief she has burden him with on his new life. Hitomi says that she does not sympathize with him and becomes angry after Yuuya makes a negative comment about Reiichi. Hitomi then hears Pure commenting on how Yuuya wanted to meet her again, which Yuuya agreed and reveals that he knows Reiichi ordered her to kill him after the end of the next Killing Bites and plans to train Pure to become strong enough to best Hitomi until then. Hitomi lets Pure go and accepts Yuuya's challenge while also telling him not to die until then.

Killing Bites Deathival Arc[]

While at the stadium, Hitomi confronts Yuuya who she thinks is planning on interfering with the preliminaries of the Killing Bites Deathival after overhearing his conversation on the phone with Seira. Yuuya suggests that they go to the preliminaries together since he could tell that she wanted to fight Eruza and Taiga. Hitomi denies his allegation since she has been ordered by Reiichi to not participate. However, Yuuya says that if Reiichi's orders to her were to just watch him then she would have no choice but to follow him to the park. Hitomi tells Yuuya that it will be pointless to do anything since he is not a Therianthrope, but is shocked to find out that he is able to transform as well.

Hitomi in the Killing Bites Deathival

Hitomi searching for Yuuya at the Killing Bites Deathival.

After arriving at Jutrick Park to search for Yuuya, Hitomi is hit from behind by a surprise attack by Brute Walrus but quickly finishes him off. Her search then leads her to taking down multiple Brutes participating in the tournament, which soon makes her realize that she is disobeying Reiichi's orders but becomes happy to once again participate in Killing Bites. While still in pursuit of Yuuya, Hitomi reunites with Onuma Den who has been given a job by the Ishida Zaibatsu to inspect this years Killing Bites participants and asks if she had any relations with a mysterious Brute by the name of Uzaki Nodoka. Hitomi says that she does not know who she is but tells Onuma to take her to her location after becoming curious to find out her backstory.

Brute Ratel vs Brute Tasmanian Devil

Hitomi eventually arrives with Onuma at the scene where Uzaki Nodoka, in her uncontrollable Gigant Megatherium mode, is wrecking havoc by taking down the Brutes in the tournament. While in her Origin Beast Mode, Hitomi attacks Nodoka and becomes strong enough to take her down by piercing through her right eye. Hitomi becomes unimpressed with her after being quickly defeated. She then blocks an attack from Pure who demands that she no longer hurt Nodoka. After recognizing who she was, Hitomi becomes eager to fight her, but sees Kuroi Tasuku, Brute Tasmanian Devil, stepping in on wanting to fight Hitomi herself. Hitomi vaguely remembers her from the last time they met but brushes it off and attacks. She then jumps back after seeing that two of her fingers have been bitten off by Tasuku, resulting in her asking what she was. Tasuku tells Hitomi her identity and calls her out as an idiot for not remembering her at first, causing Hitomi to become irritated after being insulted. As the two engage in a heated battle, Hitomi becomes impressed with Tasuku and wishes to fight against her more. Tasuku then manages to bypass Hitomi's resilient fur by biting off a piece of her shoulder. Hitomi leaves herself wide open for Tasuku to attack once again. However, she becomes shock to see Tasuku's body split in half by Nodoka after awakening.

Brute Ratel vs Gigant Megatherium

Brute Ratel slashes Gigant Megatherium.

Hitomi is knocked off Nodoka's back and sees that she has regained consciousness. She becomes angry with her for interrupting her enjoyable fight with Tasuku and thrusts her claws in Nodoka's injured right eye to bring her more pain. However, this proves to be ineffective as Hitomi right leg is severed by one of Nodoka's large claws, causing her to suffer extreme agony. Hitomi then lays helpless as Nodoka prepares to stomp her but is managed to be saved on time by Yuuya while using his partially transformed wings. He then hugs her in relief after checking to see if she was okay. Despite her bad condition, Hitomi readies herself to fight Nodoka once again. She manages to react on time to Nodoka's attack, severs one of her giant claws and dodges a potentially fatal blow while airborne but loses her left arm after having it caught by another attack from her giant claws. Hitomi then comes in to deliver a giant Slash to Nodoka's shoulder. Although she found her fight to be exciting, Hitomi sees that she can not endure for much long while trying to dodge Nodoka's attacks and yells out to Yuuya to quickly initiate his plan to put an end to the battle. She then starts to feel herself becoming exhausted and falls to ground where she looks as Nodoka brings her giant foot down on her. However, in the nick of time, the battle comes to an end after Pure dives down on Nodoka's wound created by Hitomi and emerges out of her abdomen with her internal organs ripped out. As she falls back after reaching her limit, Hitomi becomes interested in Pure after seeing her finishing move and hopes that she can fight her the next time they meet.

Killing Bites Sudden Death Arc[]

Hitomi is quickly taken by Yuuya to a hospital run by the Ishida Zaibatsu and undergoes surgery to have her limbs reattached. She then recuperates, with Yuuya looking after her, until her left arm is fully healed. Later, Hitomi is reunited with Reiichi who came to apologize for having her in intensive care but is apologized by her for being involved in the tournament. She then promises to not participate in Killing Bites again but is told by Reiichi that he approves of her taking part in the finals. However, upon overhearing there conversation, Yuuya comes in and boldly states to Reiichi that he will not allow Hitomi to participate in the finals since has not fully recovered. This prompts Hitomi to punch Yuuya out of the room and yells at him furiously for disrespecting Reiichi and thinking that he owns her. She then demanded to know why he came to see her, which Reiichi explains was because he called him. Thinking that he might be in his way, Hitomi offers to kill Yuuya on the spot but is ordered not to since he is now a valuable asset.

In the finals, Hitomi is matched with Gotoh Haiji, Brute Ibex. Before going to face her, Hitomi catches Yuuya excited over Pure's victory in her match and kicks him over a cliff after she hears him stating that he wishes that she would rethink about competing. Yuuya saves himself by manifesting his wings and tells Hitomi that he is worried for her since she is unable to make use of her left arm, saying that she will lose her life if she competes. Despite knowing the risk, Hitomi says that she wants to die doing what she loves and that her paralyzed left arm will not be a problem for her.

Brute Ibex defeats Brute Ratel

Brute Ratel defeated by Brute Ibex.

Hitomi transforms in her battle form and approaches her opponent with a request to have her use the same move she used to beat Kazama Kaede in the preliminaries, saying that she will counter it with one Slash. Hitomi takes the full impact of Brute Ibex's horn attack and gets back up severely injured. She then gets hit with the same attack, after she smiles asking Brute Ibex to perform it once again, and becomes confident that she will be able to take her down after getting hit a few more times. Brute Ibex charges once again and hits Hitomi with her horns. However, the situation changes after Hitomi sees an opening to grab ahold of one of Ibex's horns with her right hand and scratches her face. Hitomi then swings around her crippled left arm to slash at Brute Ibex and causes her to run forward off a cliff. As they both fall, Hitomi happily comments on how her opponent is vexing but fun to fight as well, and is hit headfirst towards the ground after Brute Ibex grabbed on to her legs. Hitomi falls unconscious in the end and is officially defeated by Brute Ibex. Shortly after, Hitomi wakes up and accidently slashes Yuuya after he flew down to check on her condition and stands back up with full excitement in her eyes as she looks at Brute Ibex. She then tells her that she was not a bad fighter and faints.

Etymology[]

  • Uzaki means "eaves, roof, house, heaven" (宇) (u) and "cape, peninsula" (崎) (saki/zaki).
  • Hitomi means "pupil of the eye" (瞳), a name she was given by Reiichi due to him noticing a spark of intelligence in her eyes despite being feral during her childhood.

Trivia[]

  • Unlike all other therianthropes, she was born as one. Thus, known as an original beast.
  • She is a fan of honey vanilla ice cream.
  • Before she was found by Reiichi in China, Hitomi was named Chùshēng [畜牲. lit. Animal] by the locals, a word that can refer to the six common livestock animals or can be used as an insult.
  • When she cries for having “killed” Nomoto, it is suggested she developed feelings for him.
